Study Shows Kids Adopted by Gay Parents Do Just As Well
A study published earlier this month in the American Journal of Orthopsychiatry found that children adopted from foster care by gay parents did just as well developmentally as children adopted into straight households. The study looked at 82 high risk children. Cognitive and behavioral measures were taken at 2, 12 and 24 months after the adoptive placement. Both groups showed significant gains in cognitive development and similar behavioral problems. The study noted that this was the case despite the fact that the gay families adopted children with higher developmental and environmental risks.
Once again, the facts show that gay parents do just as well as straight parents in raising kids. The anti equality folks continue to argue otherwise, but study after study proves them wrong. Unfortunately, from what I have observed, a good number of leaders on the right tend to pay very little attention to science that does not support their beliefs. Hopefully, the courts will rule on the facts rather than bigotry.
Equality is coming…. the closer it gets the less patience I have.
